are talking about the battleground states of iowa. carolas on the -- carol is on the democratic line. caller: i want to ask the gentleman what was his response when the man came out talking about the rape issue and our people in iowa taking that in, whether they even big about the fact that their daughters could be put in harm's way with somebody making a broad statement like that? guest: well, i think voters in the state take those kind of issues very seriously. i think that any comment about that will have an effect on the campaign. this is a state where something like 80% of iowa residents are regular turn to attendees. about 80% of the state is injured somewhere or other on sunday mornings. so these type of issues tend to resonate with them. they have different views about them, but they care about them. so those issues have a lot of impact in iowa. i think that iowa voters tend to react on a gut level to those type of issues, but they do react. host: let's hear from marked in des moines on our independent line. -- from marc. caller: i've been watching the election closely and i would li
, i watch which carol i want to see, because i have them all. if there is a speech that i know you have covered or a book review, i am going to watch that. when i want to find out something that has some value to it, that is going to be one of the first places i looked. i'm a public broadcasting fan. i watched those channels. out of a couple of 1 -- hundred channels i have five or 10 that i will go to and it will include all of the c-span channels. david brugger watches c-span on direct tv. c-span, secreted by cable companies in 1979, brought to you by a service by your provider.

need help. [unintelligible] host: and that was clinton in georgia. this is carol and maryland. tell us your story. caller: i am always struck in spirit by people and certainly listening to us by phone now and turning the tv off i can really feel the spirit of the last two callers. i am a roman catholic. and i think that we cannot just, like the second to last caller, just let things go their course. we are all responsible. and those who call themselves christians, which is how i feel, we will be judged on judgment day. i am really torn. it is not between obama and mitt romney, it is with my catholic conscience. it is for people to profess themselves like paul ryan as a catholic and they are not really. we cannot support abortion. we cannot make exceptions. given that, i do not know who really is a true blue catholic. or, whether i will compromise the vote, which may go to obama by not voting for mitt romney may. my catholic friends tell me and my bishop's tell me, it is ok to vote for the lesser of the two eagles. in other words they are saying, it is ok -- it is ok to vote for the les
